Admission to the happiest place on earth will soon become more expensive as Disney plans to introduce a sixth tier of pricing for the demand-based ticketing system in its California theme parks.
|DIS||THE WALT DISNEY CO.||169.07||-0.61||-0.36%|
According to Disney, the new tier will offer guests “more ticket choices for a variety of budgets” as it approaches “dynamic pricing” designed to spread the visit over weeks, months and year. In general, guests pay level 1-3 rates on weekdays outside of summer and outside of the holidays, and level 4-5 rates on weekends, summer, and spring and winter holidays.

The move comes as the Disneyland Resort saw strong demand during its gradual reopening, which began back in April.
Just two months after the start of Disneyland’s Magic Key program, the alternative to its annual pass program, the $ 1,399 Dream Key pass is sold out. Meanwhile, the $ 949 Believe Key Pass, $ 649 Enchant Key Pass, and $ 399 Imagine Key Pass are still available. All Magic Key holders receive exclusive benefits such as access to the Magic Key Terrace Dining Lounge, special items, selected discounts, an upcoming Magic Key holder month and many other special experiences, some of which have not yet been announced.
The Disneyland Resort’s extended vacation season begins November 12th with decorations, themed attractions, seasonal entertainment, special food and drink offers, and more. The Disneyland Monorail and Big Thunder Mountain roller coaster will return on November 4th, and tram operations will resume in early 2022.
In addition, Disney will launch its Genie digital planning service at Disneyland Resort this fall. The service was unveiled earlier this month at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
Walt Disney World guests wishing to skip the standby line can purchase the Disney Genie + add-on for $ 15 per person per day, available for 40 attractions. The Genie + add-on will be available at Disneyland Resort for $ 20 per person per day.
Walt Disney World guests can also book up to two high-demand attractions per day that are not included in the Genie + add-on, such as Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure or Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, for a separate fee. The prices for the selection of individual attractions vary depending on the date, attraction and park.
